One of the latest additions to Netflix this month was The Adam Project, released on March 13, a movie about a pilot who lives in a dystopian world in 2050. The pilot, whose name is Adam, is portrayed by the Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds who has won our hearts both with his charismatic looks and amazing movie roles. Adam goes back in time, accidentally to 2022, while trying to go back to 2018 to save his wife Laura (Zoe Saldana), and there he meets with his younger self, played by Walker Scobell.
The movie received overall positive reviews, getting 69% at Rotten Tomatoes and 6.9 at IMDB. However, the movie got mixed or average reviews at Metacritic, which gave the movie a score of 55 out of 100. Even if the movie seems to be getting blended reviews, it is worth watching even for its stellar cast including Ryan Reynolds and Jennifer Garner.
